Okay, so this is a controversial topic, but I've been debating on this for a few days now and wanted some third party input. DD is almost 20 months, weighs 30 pounds and is 32 inches (tall and chunky!). We're getting ready to go on a road trip to visit my family, about 400 miles or 7 hours away, one way. DD is still rear facing in Graco Milestone. The past week or so, she's been rather fussy in her carseat. I'm usually one advocating carseat safety by keeping children rear facing until at least 2 years old (I've even fussed at my MIL for using a forward facing seat in her car, and also keeping coats on her back in the winter), so the fact that I'm thinking about turning her forward facing for this trip has me in a moral dilemma. Would this be a good opportunity to turn her around so she can enjoy the trip from a different perspective and maybe not be so fussy? We're leaving tomorrow morning, so if we do decide to switch it around, it'll have to be tonight and there will be no "trial" period to see how it goes beforehand. Thoughts? TIA!!
